it was ok
bookshelves: anthology, horror

I was so disappointed by this Anthology that you could not believe it.

I enjoyed reading only three writers:

Paul J. McAuley - The true History of Doctor Pretorius, a story similiar in many ways with the one of DR. Moreau.

Norman Partridge - The bars on Satan Jailhouse, a text with some fantasy & thrilling things in the Wild Wild West.

Lisa Tuttle - Food Man - a really creepy story about a girl who doesn`t eats and opens up a relantionship with the creature under her bead...very good ending & writing.

I get it that it`s a matter of tastes but some stories aren`t even really scary so what`s the point to be in this Anthology?!

I DON`T REALLY GET IT!

PS : Gaiman it`s present...but... with a POEM!
